September Stitching

Wow!  A whole month has breezed right by!  Where did September go??

I have been giving my focus to SDW and finished a few more bands....


It almost looks like those deer are breathing fire!  

When I am stitching I cannot believe how long this sampler is!  If this continues into winter I could use it as a scarf!! 


I will forge ahead on SDW but will also make some time in my days for this beautiful sampler!!  The gorgeous Saxony by Gigi R!  I will be doing this one on 36 ct Lakeside Linen in Vintage Lentil with silks.  I am so very excited to be working with silks!  


This past month I also got to a book signing.... Michael Symon, Iron Chef and host on "The Chew"!   It was so fun to meet him, I just love his laugh!  The book is chock full of great recipes that look so easy to make.  Only 5 ingredients seem easy-breezy! :)  


And this is the latest book I just finished, in fact, today!  Another by one of my favorite authors, Elin Hilderbrand.  Silver Girl takes place on Nantucket.  I really enjoyed this one.. some drama, a little romance, and true blue friendships.  


And that about sums up my September!  I am so happy we are in my favorite season.  I love the crunch of leaves under my feet.  I wish you a wonderful week full of stitching and smiles!  Enjoy all the beautiful colors of Autumn!  xxxxx

So close to a finish! Your new project is gorgeous too. I am looking forward to some great fall movies. So tired of the Marvel summer movies.
I hope that you have a great week!

You're right ... the deer do look like they're breathing fire ... lol! Love-love-love that sampler! What a gorgeous treasure it will be when completed! Silks are nice to stitch with if the color blends cooperate : ) Have a great day!

Oh Krista, your SDW is just stunning...I love the colors!
I can't wait to see Saxony as it makes progress too...that is a LOT of floss :)

How fun, I've never been to a book signing, but there are so many I have wanted to attend...I love Michael Symon...his eyebrows and laugh are just hysterical to me.

Those mums are beautiful...I must say that fall is my favorite season, however I say the same thing when spring finally arrives at the end of a long winter too :) I'm seasonally fickle lol.

Hugs
